Look for more than one facial plastic surgeon certification

You should insist on your facial plastic surgeon having at least one facial plastic surgeon certification, and it is better if you have more than one. There are many different boards that perform certification of plastic surgeons. Each of these boards focuses on its own specialization and has its own standards, so a surgeon has to be particularly good in a number of different fields to be certified by more than one board.

A facial plastic surgeon needs to be good at many different things, but there are two overarching skill sets that are most necessary. For one thing, the surgeon needs to have a strong intuitive sense of the aesthetics of the human face, and the aging patterns most often seen on both men and women. This helps the surgeon figure out the changes that would make a face look younger, more attractive, more conventionally masculine or more conventionally feminine.

The surgeon must also have the skill and the state of the art equipment to be able to perform the surgery. This is likely to mean making adjustments of a fraction of a millimeter to the living tissue of the nose, lips and eyelids of the patient. It means being able to handle skin (whether thick, oily male skin or thin female skin), fat, muscle, sinew, cartilage and bone with equal proficiency, as well as keeping up with the latest technology.
